A fed-up Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) took to the House floor on Tuesday where he delivered a scathing speech calling for the impeachment of Donald Trump following the recent Ukraine scandal.
Lewis started out by describing how the Trump administration has completely stonewalled congressional requests for information, which he said was leaving the House of Representatives with no choice but to take this drastic option.
“At every turn, this administration demonstrates complete disdain and disregard for ethics and for the law,” Lewis said. “They’ve lied under oath. They’ve refused to account for their actions and appear before the legislative body who has the constitutional right to inquire about their activities.”
“They have a right to know if a foreign power was asked to intervene in the 2020 election,” Lewis added. “They have a right to know whether the president is using his office to line his pockets.”
Lewis then claimed with assertion that it is now time to take action against Trump.
“The time to begin impeachment proceedings against this president has come!” Lewis said.
